“It was fake, inaccurate and would cause worries and panic among the public, thus affecting the local economy,” he told Bernama when contacted here, today.
Veerapan advised the public to check any information that they received before forwarding it to other people as stern action could be taken against those spreading fake news.
The report that says Seremban is now a COVID-19 red zone went viral on social media today.
